I’ve got a feeling Danny Hart is going to be rather busy with meet and greets this Winter!
One place where nice guy Danny will be shaking hands, signing autographs and recounting the tale of his amazing World Championship race winning run at Champery this Winter will be at the Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh Park.
If you’re a braaap braaap fan and want to meet our new Champ in the flesh then put this date in your modern day filofax and pop along.
(Danny is pretty handy on a moto too, check this DirtTV: Danny Hart Winter Training vid we did last year)
The International Dirt Bike Show, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, 3rd to 6th November 2011
DIRT readers are all too familiar with the speed downhill mountain bike racers can wring out of their bikes but for many hardened motocross and enduro riders, the thought of getting the same adrenaline rush that comes with racing from a bike without an engine probably seems like a departure from reality.
Newly-crowned 2011 UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Champion Danny Hart will be spreading the pedal-power message at this year’s International Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh Park, near Coventry, in November. Danny and his dad have been regulars at motocross meetings and Danny credits motocross as one of his favourite hobbies and training disciplines.

The Show organisers were at Champery, Switzerland where they saw Danny lift the title and were blown away by his speed and riding skills. “We’re always on the lookout for different elements to bring to the Dirt Bike Show, “said Joanne Watson. “We believe there is a pretty close synergy between mountain biking and motocross and, of course, the flipside is that many top-level crossers use mountain bikes for their own training.
“Danny and his team will be exhibiting throughout the four-day show and we expect him to be hauled up onto the stage for frequent interviews. After all, an eleven second margin and a top speed of just over 40kph are pretty amazing stats and we’re sure our regular show visitors will be as impressed as we were.”
